This timely book provides a much needed spatial intervention into existing philosophical debates about ethics. It offers an innovative argument for the reconfiguration of critical spatial theory around ethical modes of action, such as care, generosity, hospitality, and responsibility. This book engages with a range of perspectives across the social sciences and develops ideas drawn from philosophical pragmatism, ordinary language philosophy, and theories of action, to offer a framework for analysing the relationships between everyday normative practices of concern and the emergence of public issues. " Geographies of Worth" provides an engaging and unique account of the relevance of key ideas and thinkers from continental philosophy to the social sciences. It reconstructs the movement of ideas through which key interpretations of philosophers have crystallized into understandings of subjectivity, power, and politics. It draws into focus the family resemblances between, and borrowings, by this tradition from analytical moral and political philosophy. In drawing these traditions together into dialogue, the book develops an original account of the politics of acknowledgement. By examining the spatial and temporal figures deployed by different theoretical traditions, this book argues for a reconfiguration of critical analysis in the social sciences away from the focus on recognition and resistance. A concern with the politics of acknowledgement focuses on analysing multiple ways of relating enacted through practices such as promising, caring, taking the responsibility, and being hospitable. This book" "synthesises current thinking in human geography and related spatial social sciences with debates in political theory, moral philosophy, and social theory. This seminal contribution will pave the way for the development of alternative theoretical positions."

Introducing Human Geographies is the leading guide to human geography for undergraduate students, explaining new thinking on essential topics and discussing exciting developments in the field. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and coverage is extended with new sections devoted to biogeographies, cartographies, mobilities, non-representational geographies, population geographies, public geographies and securities. Presented in three parts with 60 contributions written by expert international researchers, this text addresses the central ideas through which human geographers understand and shape their subject. Part I: Foundations engages students with key ideas that define human geography’s subject matter and approaches, through critical analyses of dualisms such as local-global, society-space and human-nonhuman. Part II: Themes explores human geography’s main sub-disciplines, with sections devoted to biogeographies, cartographies, cultural geographies, development geographies, economic geographies, environmental geographies, historical geographies, political geographies, population geographies, social geographies, urban and rural geographies. Finally, Part III: Horizons assesses the latest research in innovative areas, from mobilities and securities to non-representational geographies. This comprehensive, stimulating and cutting edge introduction to the field is richly illustrated throughout with full colour figures, maps and photos. These are available to download on the companion website, located at www.routledge.com/9781444135350.

Mentoring Geography Teachers in the Secondary School supports both new and experienced mentors in developing their knowledge and skills in mentoring in geography education. Within the book, chapter authors critically consider how mentoring has been conceptualised and represented in policy and academic debate, as well as examining how mentoring in geography education has been experienced and perceived in practice. Chapters in the book explore a range of perspectives, experiences and aspects of mentoring geography teachers, including: • Critical engagement with educational policy and practice • Perspectives from beginning geography teachers • Mentoring as a professional development opportunity • The value of engaging with the geography education community in teacher education • How mentoring meetings and conversations can support beginning geography teachers in their growth and development This book is a vital source of support and inspiration for all those involved in developing the next generation of geography teachers. The themes of justice, agency and voice - raised and engaged with implicitly and explicitly throughout this edited collection - are of critical importance to mentors, beginning teachers and geography education more broadly in developing and enacting a progressive vision of mentoring.
